    Re: Star Wars Marvel Plans for DLR

    Pretty good news in this update if I do say so myself! Iím much more comfortable with a Star Wars expansion in Toontown versus Tomorrowland. However, I donít see why they wouldnít bring Roger Rabbit over to Hollywoodland. The ride still has fastpass and has a 30-45 minute wait on a daily basis. Meaning more that itís one of the more popular dark rides unlike Snow or Pinocchio or Toad that rarely make it past 15 minutes. Itíd fit perfectly in Hollywoodland.

    Since Star Wars is taking over Toontown what does that mean for a Tomorrowland makeover? Itís delayed entirely?

    Iím fine with frozen as long as it isnít permanent.

    Marvel doesnít really belong in DCA. It needs itís own park. They should use Hollywoodland to showcase older classics.

    Pretty cool on the Muppetsí front. I hope it would receive a fancy new facade in the process.

    I'm loving the 60th news in this article!

    However, I thought the part about multiple new parades was interesting. Is Soundsational's leave confirmed? I know that was a recent rumor.

    Not too sure I'm thrilled about Star Wars Land taking over Toon Town. Tomorrowland is where it is for a specific reason. It doesn't clash with the rest of the park. If you plop a "futuristic" sci-fi land in an area of the park that already bleeds Classic Disney and Americana, due to its location next to Fantasyland and Frontierland, I'm afraid this would clash way too much and the natural flow of Disneyland and the overall story it is trying to present would be disrupted.

    The star wars land looks like someone just copied the idea someone just proposed in a thread on this forum not to long ago

    The transition would need to be really well done. I'm interested in how they would do the entrances to the new land.

    Sounds like it will be at least a year before we see any designs. So whatever plans they have will be cooking for awhile by the time we see them.

    If TT is going away, wouldn't it be a good idea to move RRCS over to the HPBL in DCA? They could use the Hollywood setting and "plus" RRCS with "It's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" scene and maybe even open an "Ink & Paint Club" next door for "refreshments", just remember to tell the bouncer at the door "Walt sent me"...

    I wish they would fix Tomorrowland before building a whole new land

    I wonder what the marvel coaster will be themed to (my hope is either Iron man, Captain America, Hulk, or Shield)

    ^Well there's been talk that WDS' Rock'n'Rollercoaster with replace Aerosmith with Spiderman, but I can't see them doing that in DCA. That just seems too cheap.

    Not too sure how I feel about a land themed to one franchise in Disneyland, however I suppose you could argue that Toon Town is also themed to one franchise.

    Seriously hoping that Toontown isn't used for a Star Wars expansion.

    There is a lethargic, dying land just across the way that thematically already fits. I would hate to see Roger Rabbit go.

    And also Spiderman takes place in New York (unless they offered an explanation to why he's in Hollywood)

    My hypothesis is that the transition would be from the entrance to Star Wars land being themed as Tatooine (a desert, which somewhat ties into the theme of Frontierland) and then within Star Wars land the theme would transition to the sleek and modern world of Courscant or a related planet.

    Most likely. There has never been a big push to change Tomorrowland as much as there is a push to add Star Wars. In that regard, if there is now hesitation to build in Tomorrowland, it comes from a concern over how much has been invested in the current attraction lineup. Nemo, Buzz, Star Tours and even Space Mountain all represent millions upon millions of dollars in investment and there is little point in throwing that all away.

    In other words: Tomorrowland is fine how it is.
